I can ask for a few quotes for freight if you are interested. I imagine it would be $150-$200 USD at least. But I am worried that the shape of the parcel will be a problem, because it is not a regular parcel shape.
Shipping to Aus from US has increased dramatically in the last 18-24 months, so imagine the same for the other direction too…
